New Year – Looking For A Fresh Start?

New Year: Looking for a fresh start?

January is the month when people make new year resolutions or set new goals, every year. We’re in the third week of January. Surveys tell us that many would have abandoned or even forgotten about their resolutions by the end of January. And many would try to just ‘get by’ until the year ends and start over again with another set of new resolutions or goals.

Are you one of them?

My first question is this: What makes the new year such a good time to set goals? I understand that when the clock strikes 12 midnight of the new year, it’s sort of like hitting a reset button – represents a clean slate, to start over again. Mentally, we get to start afresh with a renewed vigour to go after big dreams again. And it seems easier to let go of the disappointments, ill-feelings from setbacks and all the negative events that occured in the past year.

It’s like playing a computer game when you mess up halfway and you’re losing….you kind of give up and stop playing full out. You can’t wait for the game to end (or hit the restart button) so you can start over!

So my real question is this: Why is the new year the only good time to start afresh?

Coaching Story: The Gardener and God (You’re A Miracle Worker)

Coaching Story: The Gardener and God (You're a Miracle Worker)

We’re miracle workers. We can turn nothing into something – convert low value materials into high value products, convert pennies into pounds, turn opportunities into profits, transform adversities into advantages, create wealth even during recessions. With the miracle of the seeds, water and sunshine, we can turn a wasteland into the most beautiful garden. It’s our birthright and […]

Coaching Story: The Answer Is In The Questions (An Important Day For Eaglets)

coaching story: the answer is in the questions

Often times, we coaches do not tell the answers outright during the coaching sessions although they are obvious. We may reply with more questions instead of an answer. It’s not because we are trying to play the philosopher’s games or trying to prolong the coaching process (and earn more coaching fees!). It’s because certain insights […]

While he doesn’t write his own books, he has a number of clients who wrote about […]

Do What You Already Know (Why We Don’t Listen To Our Own Advice)

do what you already know

Many people pay top dollars to enter into a room with a coach, and came out with this big insight: “I’ve known the answer all along. The solution’s right under my nose all these while!” Many coachees would normally go in with the expectation of learning new strategies and tactics for their business or life, and what […]

Coaching Story: You Get What You Expect

you get what you expect - coaching story

Here’s a story I heard a coach shared many years ago. As I read it again, I’m reminded by how we made up the meanings to the experiences we have, and we usually find what we’re looking for. You get what you expect, wherever you go.   Once there was a man leaving his village […]
